Dear Friends of the MST,
We came to your presence to inform you of some very important recent events that happened in the struggle for Brazilian Agrarian Reform, and the situation in the countryside in general.
In recent years, capital has been implementing the model of agricultural production of agribusiness that we have denounced as perverse to the interests of the Brazilian people. A model based on monoculture, intensive use of poisons that contaminate food, unemployment and the expulsion of the rural population. A model that destroys biodiversity and has serious consequences for the climate balance.
Despite its perverseness, which gives profit only to a minority of farmers and 50 transnational companies that dominate Brazilian agriculture, it achieved hegemony through the media, which influences the government and society claiming that this is the only possible model for production.
Behind this ideological hegemony, protected by the media, also hides landlordism, unproductive, that continues accumulating land with more archaic methods.
